After Jho Maraguinot, Ateneo's Bea de Leon takes talents to PSL
MANILA, Philippines – Another member of the Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles will see action in the Philippine SuperLiga (PSL).
Bea de Leon will join the Foton Tornadoes in the PSL Invitational Conference, days after the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors announced they have acquired the services of Jho Maraguinot.
The feisty middle blocker will bolster an already formidable Tornadoes lineup that parades towering sisters Jaja Santiago and Dindin Santiago-Manabat.

With de Leon in the fold, Foton looks to surpass its bronze-medal finish in the PSL Grand Prix last May.
Maraguinot, meanwhile, will look to provide the same production for the Lady Realtors, who have yet to win a PSL championship.
